We consider all members of our team "ambassadors" of FIRST and share our stories wherever we go - from the local hardware store when we are seeking sponsorships or an elementary school presenting a safety workshop to students - we promote FIRST and its core values.
As a team, we have been incredibly blessed and encourage one another to bless others in return. Gracious professionalism within the FIRST community influenced one of our past members to create a community service project called "Robots Reaching Robots" (R3) that we were proud to support. It identified teams in need of sponsorship. We were able to successfully help Dynomite Robotics (FRC Team 4380) not only secure several sponsors, but assisted them with their "branding" by creating and donating buttons for them to share at FIRST events. We don't limit ourselves to only STEM outreach activities either. We participate in community oriented events including ringing the bell for the Salvation Army & working with JDRF to coordinate a local walk to support Type One Diabetes research.
